A team of lawyers from Lusaka is in Eastern Province to sensitize people on the referendum and the contents of the Bill of Rights.

Chief Parliamentary Counsel, Andrew Nkhunika says the sensitization tour by the lawyers will help people understand the referendum better and the contents of the proposed Bill of Rights.

Mr. Nkhunika was speaking yesterday when a team of lawyers paid a courtesy call on Provincial Permanent Secretary, Chanda Kasolo at his office in Chipata.

He says people will be sensitized through various electronic mediums.

And Eastern Province Permanent Secretary, Chanda Kasolo says the referendum issue needs a lot of sensitization for people to understand.

Mr. Kasolo also says that the Bill of Rights is one of the documents that need understanding by people because it is for their own benefits.

He thanked the team of lawyers for choosing the media as a tool of informing people on the document, saying most radio stations in Chipata are commercial but have community content which is very helpful to the people.
